    • Synopsis
    • It’s the first day of Bahia's Carnival and the dwellers of a lively slum tenement, in the Barroquinha neighborhood, just bellow the Pelourinho, are struggling with the news that the inhumane landlady of the pitiful building had shut down the water, to spoil everybody's party time. Ó paí, ó!, as the title indicates in Bahia’s “ dialect (“look at that, look”), moves the lenses towards the private space of a slum tenement, out of where icon-characters from Bahia’s cultural industry are going to pop up. The movie abrades the surface of Pelourinho’s urbanistic rearrangement that violated black territorialities, vain attempt of culturally whitening and deafricating Salvador’s public spaces.
